Michelin LTX's are my favorite for the last 20+ years. They last 50k+ miles, they are quiet and actually get a couple more mpg then a BFG All terrain. I have tried several others over the years and they never last on the big trucks. It's also what I ran in Canada on my 2wd F150. They are not aggressive nor look aggressive however. I have 4wd and they have gotten me out of some pretty bad mud holes. My new 17 has a newer version of the Michelin as well.

I have 285/65-18 Nitto A/T's on mine, replaced the original 275's.

They are a nice looking tire and are very quiet on the road.

I'll probably replace with the same thing when the time comes.

I like Michelin but have also had good results with Toyo open country.

I've had good luck with hankook dynapro ATM... Put them on a bunch of customer vehicles and service trucks with no complaints so far

I've had several different tires on my 05 f350 over the years. Will have to say hands down the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac's have been the best all around tire I've had on the truck. Quiet on the road, long life/low wear (VDOT trucks only run these tires because they last so long), good traction in rain/snow/mud/dry pavement, and heavy load rating (mine are E). I hunt in this truck, push snow in the winter, tow a trailer most of the summer to muddy fields where I race. Last set I pulled them at 60,000 miles and still had enough tread to pass VA safety inspection. Only reason for putting on a new set was because we were expecting a heavy snow fall and I wanted more traction over the mostly worn set. Mine are the LT325/65-18's

Sounds to me like Lem will trade you into a new truck for less then the cost of new tires. Laughing

I've had my eye on the Ridge Grappler Nitto came out with last year. They also have the Terra Grappler G2 that I am going to research also.

They both look nice

I’m looking at Goodyear Wangler Trailrunner AT, got a quote of $198 ea in 275/70x1

They have 55k warranty too

I have these (I think, have to check) on my F150 in a 275/70/18. Nice tire, good tread pattern, aggressive enough for some light off road and mud but not noisy...
